THRIFTY THURSDAY MAKEOVER!!

Hi guys! For this Thrifty Thursday, I thought we could do something a little different. I wanted to showcase the makeover I did on a piece that we found for the new bedroom that we are working on in the mega dollhouse project.

Here is what I found this week at the thrift store for a dollar. I had no idea what it was, but as soon as I saw it, it spoke to me. 🙂

Okay, does anyone have any earthly idea what this ghastly thing is? I have been wracking my brain about it, and I haven’t a clue!

Of course, I took it home anyway. LOL! 🙂

Seriously, what is this thing? What purpose could it possibly have?

That is the mystery of thrift shopping folks! You never know what you’re going to get. Literally.

I decided that it was a doll desk. After a few coats of paint, it was starting to come along. I cut a piece of board to fit on top. I just used wood glue to keep it in place.

Now as much as I like orange wooden desktops, (not at all) I decided that since this is going in the new dollhouse room, it had to match.

So, I added a pretty piece of contact paper on top.

Tada! Despite not knowing what the heck this was to begin with, it turned out super cute as a doll desk! At a dollar, I couldn’t possibly go wrong! I’m still curious, but no mind. It is going to be so cute in our doll’s new bedroom!

I love how sturdy it is! Just like an expensive piece of doll furniture! 🙂

I love it when my thrifting pays off. ❤

This little chair was another thrifty find. I will probably paint it white to match.

We actually found two of these little chairs at the thrift shop on two separate occasions. 🙂

I hope you enjoyed our Thrifty Thursday Makeover!

Now that I know what this thing was originally for, I must say, I like it as a doll desk better!

Happy thrifting everybody!! 🙂

  1. Cool repurpose! Isn’t it fun to buy something like that and wonder? I have a piece in the one doll bedroom that still has me puzzled. I’ve found another like it on Ebay, but no real answer as to what it was originally for. Oh well, it’s still one of my favorites, even without knowing LOL!
